Schools get behind Che Fu glass recycling rap

School children and students from two Auckland schools joined Che Fu at Bastion Point to talk about recycling and to learn about how to enter the nationwide Glass Recycling Rap competition.

David Carter, Chair of the Glass Packaging Forum explained that the competition is intended to encourage young people to recycle more glass:

“Scientific data and recycling numbers are quite boring so working with someone like Che Fu to promote glass recycling has much more credibility.”

Che Fu told students from Orakei Primary and Selwyn College that he had jumped at the chance to be part of a campaign to promote the environment to young people because it was consistent with his approach to make positive music.

“An empty glass bottle…Pick it up, PICK IT UP
Round your house round your home… Pick it up, PICK IT UP
On your way at school…Pick it up, PICK IT UP
Recycle. What?...RECYCLE
We like to keep it real green round here, ROUND HERE
We like to keep it real clean round here.. ROUND HERE”
